Never mind about the species of the wood, what do you know about demolition?

Old barns are often structurally questionable, and have had who-knows-what kind of “improvements” over the years. If it was ever painted, you might be dealing with lead paint issues – and don’t forget asbestos.

Unless you know quite a bit about demolition, and have the tools and equipment to do it safely, you should probably pass on this “deal”.
